Muddy pitch, small venue to host Rugby World Cup qualifiers | Sports


BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — France’s 20-team Rugby World Cup No. 19 squad next year is set to be determined on Saturday on what is expected to be a mud-splattered pitch at a 10,000-seater stadium north of Brisbane.

Tonga or Hong Kong will qualify after the Asia-Pacific Qualifier on Queensland State’s Sunshine Coast. The consolation prize for the losing team will be a place in a last chance qualifier in November.
